L'Hotel
Presented by: Pittsburgh Public Theater
Ted Pappas directs the world premiere of Ed Dixon's comedy L'Hotel. Six great stars from hundreds of years apart find themselves together in a strange and wondrous hotel. How do Sarah Bernhardt and Jim Morrison end up at the same breakfast table? In a battle of wits, will Oscar Wilde or Victor Hugo triumph? Does the Ouija board favor Isadora Duncan or Gioachino Rossini? This play will make celebrity-watchers think they've died and gone to heaven.
